I've worked with UniversalGiving for several months and have really enjoyed my time there. The hands down best thing about it was my coworkers, who are all very sweet and amazing people. I also had a lot of great mentor-ship from the managers, who took the time to evaluate my skills and actually try to push me out of my comfort zone so that I could grow and improve as a person. I would say that is something that is hard to find at many companies these days. UniversalGiving as a nonprofit is also unique in that it vets the NGO's it partners with very thoroughly and doesn't take a cut from donations. Because of this, UG stuck out to me compared to other nonprofits, and it was one of the main reasons I decided to join. After reading a lot about the dangers of nonprofits out there who are not opaque, or might not be legitimate, I think more organizations should follow their quality model.
